Friday Night at the Movies

We sent out some mixed signals on whether advance registration is needed for our Friday Night at the Movies shows, the first of which is this Friday evening, July 16th. To be quite concise, no advance registration is needed. Just bring your family, your membership card and $5 for the whole carload of you ($10 without a membership card). Sorry for the confusion.


This should be a fun event for all and we hope to see lots of our friends there.

Calling All Crafters!

The Frelinghuysen Arboretum will be host a Holiday Craft Show on the weekends of December 4/5 and December 11/12 in conjunction with their annual exhibit -- Gingerbread Wonderland -- which draws an annual visitation of 12,000 to 15,000 guests. To review the requirements and apply for a table, please download the Craft Show Application.

Applications may also be picked up at the Haggerty Education Center of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum located at 53 East Hanover Avenue in Morristown, NJ.


Summer Approaches

I am sure all you plant lovers are well aware of your garden's shift toward summer plants. The greens are deepening, the lilies are getting ready, the roses have displaced the peonies for showiest blossoms. It is no different at the Arboretum, where volunteer Phil Dahlen sent his latest update of our What's in Bloom list with this nice note: "The summer's almost here and the flowers are kicking into high gear.


Gallery Glitch

We had a short-lived problem with the database server that underlies our picture gallery. It is now fixed and I encourage you to see the fine pictures of the Arboretum that are found there.


Thanks to all who notified me of the problem. I appreciate your help.


Photos Contributed by John Brown

I received an email full of images of the Arboretum from contributor, John Brown and am happy to announce that they are all available for viewing. Go to our Photo Gallery to see these and other fine pictures of all the beauty at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum.


Wow, Is Summer Here?

It's hard to believe how nice and summer-like it is outside and it looks like this beautiful weather will be with us on Memorial Day weekend, too. How lucky are we.


Everything is blooming and our What's In Bloom list is right up to date. Take some time in the next few days for a nice walk at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum.


Contributed Photos Update

I am always happy to receive a batch of photos from one of our many visitors -- they give a feel for how enjoyable the Frelinghuysen Arbortum's gardens are, so it was especially nice to get more picures from an earlier contributor, Christine Tappen. Thanks, Christine. Your pictures are posted here on the Photo Gallery page.

Beautiful Arboretum Photos

I was happy to find two batches of beautiful pictures of the Arboretum in my inbox recently. Taken by two different Arboretum visitors, Christine Tappen and Bart Zoni, they offer us two views of the Arboretum and its Spring splendor. Take a look at both these sets in our picture gallery. Thanks to both for making these available to us.

If you have pictures you would like to share, please send them to me (


Arboretum Action

All this beautiful weather has super-charged the Frelinghuysen Arboretum's many gardens. Look at our recently updated What's In Bloom list (maintained by volunteer Phil Dahlen) and then enjoy a walk on a sunny afternoon at the Arboretum.
